[TV Recap] WWE Raw – 12/3/2012

raw-recap

Raw 12/3 Preview:

  • The Shield (Dean Ambrose/Seth Rollins/Roman Reigns) made yet another statement at the end of last week’s show, taking out not only Ryback once again but also the WWE Tag Team Champions Team Hell No. While they claim not to work for WWE Champion CM Punk, evidence continues to mount towards the contrary, and there’s a good chance these three former NXT stars will once again make their presence felt.
  • Vince McMahon will be on the show tonight, for reasons yet unclear but given how crazy things have been getting over the past few weeks, he’ll undoubtedly have plenty to say.
  • Speaking of the WWE Tag Team Champions, Daniel Bryan and Kane seemed to have finally buried the hatchet over the past week and are finally getting on the same page. But given their antagonistic personalities, it’ll be interesting to see if they can make it last.
  • Last week John Cena appeared to silence his harshest critic, Dolph Ziggler, by pinning him clean in the center of the ring. However Ziggler has not let the feud go, continuing to antagonize Cena on Smackdown. With tempers flaring and tensions mounting we may be in for another Cena/Ziggler match…perhaps at a certain PPV coming up soon.
  • And as for Cena and AJ Lee…it looks like they seem to be getting much more friendly in recent weeks due to the accusations and attacks brought on them by Vickie Guerrero and her associates. But it seems Lee might be just a little more into Cena than vice versa. Given how the past month has gone show-wise, we’ll be sure to be treated to another chapter of WWE’s ongoing soap opera story.
  • World Heavyweight Champion The Big Show made a statement last week by taking a chair and dismantling it right in front of his TLC opponent Sheamus. With their “Chairs Match” only two weeks away, it’ll be interesting to see how the feud continues to progress.

This week on Smackdown, Kofi Kingston actually defends the Intercontinental Championship, The Miz invites John Cena onto MizTV, Ryback eats The Prime Time Players alive, and the R-Truth/Antonio Cesaro feud continues much to the joy of…I don’t know, someone probably.

[TV Recap] WWE Raw – 11/19/2012 (‘Survivor Series 2012’ Fallout)

Raw 11/19 Preview:

  • With his (somewhat tainted) victory last night at Survivor Series, CM Punk will officially celebrate his 365th consecutive day as WWE Champion. Given the man’s ego and the massive accomplishment, don’t be surprised if he celebrates as obnoxously and heel-ish as one would expect from the “Best in the World”.
  • The other big news item coming out of Survivor Series is the arrival of NXT standouts Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, and Roman Reigns who threw Ryback through the Spanish announce table, effectively costing him the WWE Championship. The question remains: was this an attack orchestrated by Paul Heyman to protect his client or was this another Brad Maddox-situation where three young guys decided to take matters in their own hands to finally get noticed? Here’s hoping we get some answers, as well as some mic time for Ambrose. And speaking of Ryback, something tells me he won’t take this screwjob lying down…
  • Now that Cena has once again been come up short in the WWE Championship hunt, it is time for him to refocus on the whole AJ Lee/Vickie Guerrero storyline, which now has an added wrinkle in the form of Tamina Snuka who attacked Lee during their segment at Survivor Series. With that and Dolph Ziggler‘s win for his team last night, the bad guy side of this feud seems to have the upper hand. Jury’s out on what the next chapter of this soap opera will be, but I bet people will be bitching about it either way (including this guy).
  • Sheamus may have defeated The Big Show last night but it was by DQ and therefore he is not the World Heavyweight Champion once again. He didn’t take so kindly to this result and proceeded to decimate Show with a series of chairshots followed by a Brogue Kick for good measure. With TLC coming up as their next PPV, it looks like we’re headed down the “C” part of that road. No, not c*nt.
